At a recent religious conference where Al Gore was described as “a Prophet” and presented with a Bible with a GREEN cover, he announced, citing Luke 12:54-57 for scriptural support, that it is dishonest (and therefore sinful) for anyone to claim that global warming is merely a theory rather than a scientific fact.
From the Baptist Press:
ATLANTA (BP)–Protecting the earth from global warming is a mandatory part of following Jesus, former Vice President Al Gore said at a “Stewardship of the Earth” luncheon Jan. 31 during the New Baptist Covenant Celebration in Atlanta.
“This is not a political issue,” Gore told a crowd of approximately 2,500 paying attendees. “It is a moral issue. It is an ethical issue. It is a spiritual issue.”
Gore quoted Scripture several times in his speech and repeated his views that increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere are causing a global climate crisis. Gore produced an Academy Award-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth,” which also dealt with global climate change and is being shown at the New Baptist Covenant meeting.
In an introduction of Gore, Robert Parham, executive director of the Baptist Center for Ethics, called the former Democratic presidential nominee a “Baptist prophet” and appeared to criticize the Southern Baptist Convention for its failure to commend Gore for his achievements. He also presented Gore with a “Baptist of the Year Award.”
Gore, citing Luke 12:54-57 for scriptural support, argued that it is dishonest for anyone to claim that global warming is merely a theory rather than a scientific fact.
“The evidence is there,” he said. “The signal is on the mountain. The trumpet has blown. The scientists are screaming from the rooftops. The ice is melting. The land is parched. The seas are rising. The storms are getting stronger. Why do we not judge what is right?”
Jeepers. Spot_the_dog reckons, if I’m already going to go to Hell for questioning the science of Al Gore’s Anthropogenic Global Warming®, might as well get a few more sins on the board. Gee, my next-door neighbour’s wife is awful cute …

“The ice is melting. The land is parched.”
Does anyone else see the contradiction there?

The only “prophet” on al-Gors mind is spelled P-R-O-F-I-T.
How cute Al…Mao had a little red book

Where is the lightening bolt? God?

Angus, God’s probably pissing himself laughing that Gore thinks he’s so important.

I wonder if all of these extreme cold spells we’ve been having lately aren’t God’s way of reminding Al Gore & his acolytes who’s really in charge here?

It is one thing to laugh at all of this, but the mass hysteria has become a cauldron in which we all are going to simmer until done, ready to be served up to the power mongers. People like this group think that by jumping on the band-wagon, they somehow will be spared the consequences on the complete abrogation of their rational faculty. You know, like those Germans who thought that as long as they got theirs, Hitler was okay with them?

Deuteronomy 18:22 – If a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD but the thing does not take place or prove true, it is a word that the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; do not be frightened by it.
Matthew 24:24 – For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
So I say to Al Gore, “the LORD has not sent you but you’ve made the people trust a lie” – Jeremiah 28:15b
Belonging to the Southern Baptist Church no more makes a man a religious man or a Christian anymore than saying you an expert on climate change makes you an expert on climate trends. This man is leading the masses with itching ears to they’re doom on the precept of saving the earth. No one wants to be irresponsible with the one earth we have but saying that my suv is causing the polar ice caps to melt is a bold faced lie.

Psalm 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Psalm 37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
Don’t be intimidated by the UN Marxist globalist climate propagandists. The only problems on the earth are due to people moving too much into cities where you cannot farm or have clean water sources due to compact area scarcity. Once you go out of cities anywhere on earth it is a vast wilderness as it has always been for thousands of years since creation. People need to move more out of cities, learn forest farming techniques, ceb earth block building techniques, water well drilling techniques and other manageable skills. Everyone is leaving what we used to do for thousands of years, so of course people are going to fall into fear when they can’t take care of themselves as their ancestors did for millenia. Now if you can’t get a job in a city and you can’t pay your bills you somehow think Al Gore must be right, it is all an illusion based on your fears, ignorance and the propaganda and control of the mass media who inject the entire masses with these lies day after day after day making you feel like a criminal if you don’t go along with their propaganda.
If God laughs at these Marxist criminals and their world domination propaganda, so can you.

Tizona I like what you said by the way, Mao had his little red book and Gore has his little green book how ironic, neither of them have anything to do with the Bible though. They are/were both shameless Marxists who will stop at NOTHING until they have global domination through a UN/IMF/OECD one world government.
